Basketball Anyone?

Turkish basketball, which had been over shadowed by football in the past, has attracted ever more attention in recent years thanks to the success in games and newly built modern sports halls.

In 2010, Turkey hosted the important international basketball organization, FIBA Basketball World Cup, and the national team succeeded in winning the silver medal in the championship. In terms of clubs, the most successful teams in international tournaments, Anadolu Efes team, Fenerbahçe Ülker, Galatasaray Medikal Park, Beşiktaş Milangaz, Pınar Karşıyaka are among the most important teams in men’s basketball. At the same time, Turkey’s Women’s 1st Basketball League has a widening popularity and thrilling games receive increasing coverage in the sports news.

Anadolu Efes Team, the Istanbul-based team, one of the most important teams in Turkish basketball, is known for its success at the European championships. Anadolu Efes won the Koraç Cup in 1996, secured the second place at the European Clubs Cup in 1993, collected another silver medal in Euroleague in 2000, and finished with the third place in Suproleague in 2001. Fenerbahçe Ülker, on the other hand, has been the first and only basketball team in history that has defeated an NBA team. Fenerbahçe Ülker made history when it defeated the legendary Boston Celtics with a score of 97-91 at the NBA Europe Live 2012 in İstanbul. And, Galatasaray Medikal Park played quarter-finals in 2013-2014 Euroleague season.

If you are planning to spend time in Istanbul on your next Turkey vacation and if you are a basketball fan, do not miss Anadolu Efes games at the Abdi İpekçi Arena sports hall with a 12,500 seat capacity. Similarly, you can purchase a ticket for a Fenerbahçe Ülker game played at the Ülker Sports Arena, or for a Galatasaray Medikal Park game at the Abdi İpekçi Arena and enjoy some truly breath-taking moments. If you are planning to enjoy your vacation swimming on gorgeous beaches near İzmir, you can get a ticket for this year’s champion, Pınar Karşıyaka, at the 6,500 seat capacity Karşıyaka Arena sports hall and experience a night of basketball fun after a sunny day at the beach. All these clubs also have women’s basketball teams, who put their signatures on cliffhanging, electrifying games at national and international competitions.

Turkish national basketball team, known as “12 Giant Men” have nowadays been preparing for the 2015 European Basketball Championship in September. The national team, which finished the FIBA Basketball World Cup in 2014 in 8 th place, was the winner of the gold medal at the Mediterranean Games in 2013, which was hosted by Turkey. The biggest success of the national team in its history came at the 2010 FIBA Basketball World Cup, held in Turkey, when it played the finals against the USA and won the silver medal. The games of “12 Giant Men,” who have NBA players Ersan İlyasova, Furkan Aldemir and Ömer Aşık on their current roster, turned into a real celebration for basketball fans. National Women’s Basketball Team, meanwhile, is busy with the preparations for their recently drawn rivals at the European Women Basketball Championship to be held in Czech Republic in 2017.

Turkey national basketball team

turkey basketball players

The Turkey national basketball team represents Turkey in international basketball competitions organized by FIBA . The team is nicknamed "12 Dev Adam", meaning 12 Giant Men.

Turkey has won two silver medals at major international tournaments, namely the FIBA World Cup ( 2010 ) and FIBA EuroBasket ( 2001 ). Turkey has also won two gold (1987, 2013 ); one silver (1971); and three bronze (1967, 1983, 2009 ) medals at the Mediterranean Games .

Currently, Turkey stands 8th in the FIBA World Rankings .

History

Ahmet Robenson was known as being the first organizer of basketball in Turkey . [1] In 1936, Turkey played its first ever basketball match against Greece , winning 49–12. For many years basketball was the second most popular sport in Turkey, but the national team could not win any international tournaments until the 1980s, when Turkey won the gold medal at the 1981 Balkan Championship and the 1987 Mediterranean Games . Efes Pilsen was the first Turkish club to win a European Cup in any team sport, the 1995–96 FIBA Korać Cup . Since then, basketball in Turkey has grown constantly, as the national basketball team began to play a major role in international tournaments. The Turkish national team won the silver medal at the EuroBasket 2001 , and the silver medal at the 2010 FIBA World Championship . [2]

1930s–1940s

Turkey's European championship debut came at the EuroBasket 1949 . The Turks split their six games in the seven-team round robin tournament, finishing with three wins and three losses for 4th place. [3]

Turkey competed again at the EuroBasket 1951 in Paris . Their only loss in the preliminary round was to the Soviet Union as Turkey earned the second-rank spot with a 3–1 record. Their single loss to Bulgaria in the semi-final round, however, was enough to bump them from championship contention as they came out on the bottom of a three-way tie with a 2–1 record. They won their classification 5–8 game, but lost the 5/6 game to Italy .

Turkey returned after missing 1953's edition to the EuroBasket 1955 in Budapest . They went 1–2 in their preliminary round group, taking third in the pool and moving to classification play. There they lost only to France on their way to a 3–1 record in classification round 1. They lost their 9–12 semi-final by 1 point to Finland , but defeated England 77–54 in the next game to take 11th place of the 18 team tournament.

Turkey appeared again at the EuroBasket 1957 in Sofia . Losing to the Soviet Union and Poland in the preliminary round, Turkey took third in the group to be sent to the classification pool. They defeated each of the other seven teams in the classification round in order to take 9th place of the 16 teams.

1960s–1980s

The 1960s, 1970s and 1980s were in general a barren period for the Turkish national basketball team. They were, however, successful at the Mediterranean Games , winning two bronze medals in 1967 and 1983, one silver medal in 1971, and one gold medal in 1987. Turkey also won the gold medal at the Balkan Championship in 1981. The team was led by notable coaches like Yalçın Granit and Mehmet Baturalp in the 1960s and 1970s, and by Aydan Siyavuş during the Balkan and Mediterranean triumphs of the 1980s, which marked the dawn of a successful new era in Turkish basketball (especially in European club competitions) starting from the late 1980s and early 1990s. Efe Aydan and Erman Kunter were among the notable players of this period in Turkish basketball. Erman Kunter, who still holds a number of all-time records in the Turkish Basketball League as a player, later became a successful coach in the Turkish and French basketball leagues, and led the Turkish national team at the EuroBasket 1999 .

Turkey appeared again at the EuroBasket 1993 after 12 years of absence, but finished 11th among 16 teams. Turkey finished 13th among 14 teams at the EuroBasket 1995 , 8th among 16 teams at the EuroBasket 1997 , and again 8th among 16 teams at the EuroBasket 1999 .

As the host country of the EuroBasket 2001 , the Turkish national basketball team, led by coach Aydın Örs , reached the EuroBasket final for the first time in their history (a few years earlier, Aydın Örs had reached the final of the 1992–93 FIBA Saporta Cup and won the 1995–96 FIBA Korać Cup as the coach of Turkish club Efes Pilsen , which was the first European title won by a Turkish basketball team.) Turkey defeated Croatia in the quarter-finals and Germany in the semi-finals, before playing with Yugoslavia in the final. Turkey lost the game 69–78 and finished the tournament with the silver medal. Turkish star İbrahim Kutluay scored 19 points in the final game and was included in the all-tournament team. Team captain Harun Erdenay was another key scorer for Turkey in the tournament. The team's roster included past and future NBA players Mirsad Türkcan , Hidayet Türkoğlu and Mehmet Okur .

Turkey then qualified for the 2002 FIBA World Championship . Turkey had 4 wins and 4 defeats at the championship and finished 9th.

At the EuroBasket 2003 , Turkey reached the second round where they got eliminated by Serbia and Montenegro.

Turkey qualified for the EuroBasket 2005 held in Serbia and Montenegro , but lost to Lithuania (87–75) and Croatia (80–67), defeating only Bulgaria (94–89) in the preliminary round. This win brought Turkey to the knock-out stage, where Germany eliminated the team 66–57. Turkey ended the tournament with a 9–12 rank.

Turkey was awarded one of the four wild cards by FIBA for the qualification to the 2006 FIBA World Championship in Japan .

The Turkish squad completed the preliminary rounds in Group C at second place after the Greek team , and was entitled to play in the round of 16 , winning 4 matches against Lithuania (76–74), Australia (76–68), Brazil (73–71) and Qatar (76–69) out of 5 games in total, losing only to Greece (69–76) in the last match. The young team also achieved the first official win over Lithuania and the first ever 4 consecutive wins in a championship. On August 26, 2006, the Turkish national team qualified for the Elite Eight, defeating Slovenia by 90–84. In the quarter-finals, Turkey lost to Argentina . They managed to defeat Lithuania once again before losing to France , finishing 6th.

A new nickname, "12 Cesur Yürek" (12 Brave Hearts) was proposed after the young and inexperienced team's surprising performance in the 2006 World Championship, despite not having star players Hidayet Türkoğlu , Mehmet Okur , Mirsad Türkcan , Kerem Tunçeri and Hüseyin Beşok .

At the EuroBasket 2007 , Turkey played in Group C with Lithuania , Germany and the Czech Republic . Turkey began by losing 86–69 to Lithuania and was then blown out 79–49 by Germany. The team ended group play with an 80–72 win over fellow bottom-of-the-group team Czech Republic. With that win Turkey advanced to the next round, but the team lost all its games (66–51 to Slovenia, 84–75 to Italy, 85–64 to France) in that round. Turkey was eliminated from the EuroBasket 2007 with a 1–5 record and an 11th-place finish.

At the EuroBasket 2009 , Turkey played in Group D with hosts Poland , Lithuania and Bulgaria . The Group D matches took place in Wrocław , Poland. Turkey won all three of its group matches and qualified for the second round. Turkey enjoyed a strong start in the second round as well, winning its first match against World Champions Spain , when Ömer Aşık and Ersan İlyasova (both of whom are NBA players) rejected a last-second shot by Sergio Llull . Turkey then beat Serbia in overtime. Turkey's winning streak came to an end against Slovenia, when, despite a 19-point comeback, Engin Atsür missed a desperation three pointer in a 69–67 loss. In the quarter-finals, Turkey met Greece and lost a close game in overtime, finishing the tournament 8th. Yet, in the same year, Turkey won the bronze medal at the 2009 Mediterranean Games .

As the host country, Turkey, led by coach Bogdan Tanjević , automatically qualified for the 2010 FIBA World Championship . Turkey topped their group, winning all their games against Côte d'Ivoire , Russia , Greece , Puerto Rico and China . In the knockout stages Turkey managed to defeat France , Slovenia and Serbia in a thrilling semi-final match which Turkey won 83–82. The team enjoyed its greatest FIBA success to date, going undefeated in group play and progressing to the final, where they eventually lost to the United States and won the silver medal. Each player was awarded a prize of 1,500,000 TL (approximately $1,000,000 in September 2010) from the Turkish government for being the runner-up in the competition. [4]

Orhun Ene , who was the assistant coach of Turkey next to Tanjević and had a successful career as a player, was appointed the head coach to lead Turkey during the EuroBasket 2011 . The team had a bad tournament as they got eliminated in the second group phase after losing three straight games. Turkey and Serbia were the only teams that managed to defeat EuroBasket 2011 winners Spain during the tournament. In that same year, Turkey won their second gold medal in the 2013 Mediterranean Games by defeating Serbia in the final.

At the EuroBasket 2013 , Turkey managed to defeat only Sweden , and finished 17th.

On March 22, 2014, the Turkish Basketball Federation announced that Ergin Ataman would lead the team during the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup , EuroBasket 2015 and the 2016 Summer Olympics . Ergin Ataman is one of the most successful Turkish coaches in European club competitions, having won the 2001–02 FIBA Saporta Cup with the Italian club Montepaschi Siena , the 2011–12 FIBA EuroChallenge with the Turkish club Beşiktaş , and the 2015–16 EuroCup with the Turkish club Galatasaray . The Turkish team failed to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics after a loss to France .

On January 19, 2017, Ufuk Sarıca succeeded Ergin Ataman as Turkey's new head coach. Sarıca was among the star players of Efes Pilsen in the 1990s, winning the 1995–96 FIBA Korać Cup and reaching the final of the 1992–93 FIBA Saporta Cup with the Istanbul club under head coach Aydın Örs .
